The two goals of this project is to donate 42 bicycles to the orphans and all the additional funds will go to the construction of an electrical irrigation pump. I found out about Wheels 4 Life though twitter and they are an organization that donates bicycles to third world countries. I emailed the director of the organization, so they can help me donate the bicycles. If they decide to help me donate the bicycles, all the funds raised by fundraisers will then be used for the completion of the electric irrigation pump. The director of the Machao Orphanage Foundation and I filled out an application and sent it to Wheels 4 Life.

It has been a tough week, I realized that this journey is going to be more difficult than I thought. I have passed out hundreds of flyers and talked with many business owners but I have not received any positive feedback yet. This has been a very valuable lesson because I can not take "No" as an answer. Most people and business might not have the money to donate, but my friends and I will not stop trying until 15 bicycles are in the hands of the orphans at the Machao Orphanage.
